Editor,

THIS IS in reference to Pan Butamire’s opinion piece, “Rwanda should reject this “food for work” from the UK”, (The New Times, March 8).

That was spot on. This type of foreign aid channeled through non governmental organisations (NGOs) deviates from our development path; it is unacceptable and must be rejected.

Any aid should operate within the framework of Economic Development and Poverty Reduction Strategy (EDPRS). The Government has shown its commitment to work as millions of people continue to emerge out of poverty.

J. Bideri, Kayonza
